Search for a Word, Suffix or Prefix (or F12)

Controller > search for word or part of word
All lists allow you to search for a word or part of one, or a number. The search operates on the current column of data, though you can change the choice as in this screenshot.
The syntax is as in Concord. As the example shows, sound* has located the word sounds within a concordance and shows some of its context. To find again, press OK again....
Whole word – or bung in an asterisk
The syntax is as in Concord, so by default a whole word search. To search for a suffix or prefix, use the asterisk. Thus *ed will find any entry ending in ed; un* will find any entry starting with un. *book* will find any entry with book in it (book, textbook, booked.)
Word lists can be sorted by suffix: see WordList sorting.
